obviously you have to get new motor mounts and some relocation of the battery etc. But yah, not a HUGE change in stuff. My only question to you is this though. If you're going for a swap - why not swap the K20A2 in? Why Go A3? For the cost of install, etc, I'd opt for the A2 if you're going to the trouble of swapping. Plenty of people have dropped the RSX-S motor in the 7thgens without problem. Basically same deal- battery and motor mounts need changed around. Plus, you'd also gain the type S 6speed tranny - good thing when you're planning to boost it as well. I don't know, that's just me I guess.
